Bright purple, with red edges. There’s something noble about this wine. Concentration and poise – cassis; tobacco leaf; and dried herbs. Oak persuades the fruit to sing its song. Less is so much more. Deference to cool-climate Cabernet sets the winemaker apart. It will age for decades in the tradition of Bordeaux.
Very deep opaque crimson in colour. A complex nose showing sweet, lifted aromas of red currants, plums, tobacco and violets with cedar, cigar box and anise notes. A great vintage, drink now to 2016.
Lovely rich straw colour from centre to rim – it’s erudite and refined. It has a tease of citrus, and a hint of dried-herbs with fine ribs flowing from an acid spine.
It’s not opaque, but it is serious. Intense notes of white pepper; woodspice; and mulberries. Fragrant and generous. A Northern Rhone sensibility (Hermitage) adorns this wine.
Cranberries and BRIGHT red cherries – overtly aromatic, and compelling before it’s sipped.There’s no identity crisis here – unmistakable FRANC – the fruit sits proudly above all else.
Vibrant purple – the colour more the sum than its parts. Red fruits and a brooding core in concert with oak-derived spice. Its strength is through its subtlety.
